Voluntary Membership & Benefits »

  • Certain businesses located within the Business Improvement Area (BIA) boundaries, including banks, non-profits, and churches, are exempt from tax certification and therefore are not automatic Downtown SLO members.
  • We strongly encourage these businesses, as well as downtown residents, and businesses located outside of downtown to become voluntary members.

To inquire about being a member, reach out to Membership & Community Engagement Coordinator Kelly MacKinnon:
